Calgary Stampeders Sign QB Tommy Stevens

On Tuesday, the Calgary Stampeders signed American quarterback Tommy Stevens. With the extension of Jake Maier taking place just a few days prior, there is growing speculation that starter Bo Levi Mitchell may not return for the 2022 season. 

Stevens, an Indiana native, started his collegiate career at Penn State. He saw limited playing time behind Trace McSorley, and opted to transfer after four years at the program (2015-2018). In 2019, he landed at Mississippi State. Although Stevens found more success in the SEC, he only played in 9 games due to injury. 

Stevens was selected in the seventh round of the 2020 NFL draft by the New Orleans Saints. He was moved to tight end during training camp, and was cut before the regular season. Later that year, Stevens signed with the Carolina Panthers’ practice squad as a quarterback. He was elevated to the active roster for a single game, but didn’t see any playing time. 

In 2021, Stevens was briefly with the New York Giants, where he also worked out at tight end. Now, the 25-year-old will head up North and attempt to continue his professional career, doing so at his original position. Stevens has plenty of experience at multiple levels of the game, and will bring versatility to any offense. It’s not guaranteed that he’ll earn a roster spot in Calgary, but it does gives him a chance to show his talents in front of a new audience.
